#AnnaliseMurphy - Congratulations once again to Annalise Murphy who was named Irish Tatler Woman of the Year at the magazine’s annual awards in Dublin last weekend, as Evoke.ie reports.

The prize is yet another appropriate tribute to the 26-year-old Laser Radial sailor’s convincing silver-winning performance at this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio.

But the National YC sailor was humble about the honour on Twitter, saying that it was “amazing to be in a room of so many inspirational women”.

Murphy was named Afloat.ie’s Sailor of the Month for August in recognition of her world-beating success on Guanabara Bay, four years after her heartbreak in London.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
